Wineyards

Our vineyards are located on about 60 hectares of land: among the red labels we do produce the Sangiovese grape, one of the most popular Italian varietals, the Merlot, the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Petit Verdot, the Alicante and the Syrah. Among the white ones the Ansonica, king of the local white vineyards that has the D.O.C under the name "Ansonica Costa dell’Argentario”; the Vermentino, the Sauvignon Blanc, the Trebbiano and the Chardonnay.
The ​​production of DOC Parrina is located at the foot of a hilly area of Orbetello’s municipality and is characterized by two types of ground: sandy and sandy-loam. The vine cultivation, called “cordone speronato”, leaves a few buds on the plant that help to increase grapes’ sugar contents and aromatic compounds. Moreover the high temperature range helps to develop the complexity and aromatic intensity of our wines.

The winemaking tradition of this area dates back to Etruscan times handed down by the Phoenicians and Greeks, and later, by the Romans. The coining of the company’s name probably occurs during the Spanish State of the Garrisons (XVI-XVIII century b.c.) in fact Parrina’s name could result from "parra" which in Spanish means grapevine. After big signs of appreciation of Parrina’s wines in the 50s, the company decided to apply for the recognition of the Denomination of Controlled Origin (DOC) which was granted in 1971.
